TODAY IS CHRISTIAN-CARD WEDNESDAY
The defintion of the CHRISTIAN-CARD for me is a phrase that is used to exploit Gods people. All in all the world takes much pleasure in applying it, therefore I'll take pleasure in defining it. As always this is one of those blogs that arrived before me at the strangest times, nonetheless they are very much welcomed and dearly appreciated. What can I say “I’m prone to learn everything that I can from what is before me,” anything else is my time misused on what refuse to learn from that which my presence could be offering. . “Lord, make me to know my end. And what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am.” (Psalms 39:4).
Please allow me a moment to define CHRISTIAN-CARD in the contents of those whom grossly abuse it for their own selfish (ego) reasons. What I've found to be true is that those who use the CHRISTIAN-CARD will hurl these very words “you call yourself a Christian" all in order for us to bow and surrender to their ego (flesh). Sadly these folk have no inkling what a Christian (follower of Jesus Christ) really is.
Admittedly I was once one of those folk that assumed I knew how a Christian should talk, walk, obey, listen, and live. As Mary-Mary-Mary sang "But what they don't know is when you go home And get behind closed doors man you hit the floor And what they can't see is your on your knees." Thank you God, for you alone has allowed me to know the truth, so that I would no longer use the CHRISTIAN-CARD for my many ego (flesh) reasons.
Oh, how I love the word of God! For in the word I find that I’m only a Christian (follower of Jesus Christ) because of my faith in what He has already done. I can’t deny, I used to argue with folk whenever they would grossly apply the CHRISTIAN-CARD. Unfortunately I wasted a lot of learning time on this ignorant statement of others. However when I learned why Jesus Christ was, why I was like Him, why I was able to abide in Him, and what I will be in the end with Him I then utterly refuse to place others CHRISITAN CARD into my hand to play on my life.
I can’t deny that sometimes it’s hard when the ignorancy or foolishness of others is calling one to defend the truth about who they are "especially if one has had previous issues in identifying with Christ". However if we learn that this is the falsehood in folk own heart being employed by Satan to suggest otherwise we’ll pity them for their ignorancy or foolishness, and not become prey to the CHRISTIAN-CARD their trying to use. Miraculously when we refuse to accept the card, our God’s grace plays the identity card "metaphorically" that always allows us to conquer that which is trying to deceitfully remove Christ identity from us.
In all sincerity I used to think that Christians had to give all they had to this world. I also believed that if you were a Christian, and did one thing wrong (sin) you were no longer a Christian. The truth of my life at the time was I believed that Christians’ had to live according to the Old Testament Laws. For example if they said a foul word I automatically thought “they were no longer a Christian.
My friends, our perception of a Christian can be gravely tainted by Satan, circumstances, as well as the many sources that have muddled our young minds with chaos. That is why it is upmost important that Christians (followers of Jesus Christ) not allow others to place a gauge upon them by using the CHRISITAN-CARD to measure whether or not they are a Christian. If you have experienced this evil, you very well know how that feels, and if you haven’t keep following Jesus you will.
Food for thought, when folk measure your life by playing the CHRISTIAN-CARD evidently their not measuring their own. “Each of you should carry your own load.”(Galatians 6:5). Wonderfully stated! For that reason, if you happen to be one of those folk that take liberty in applying the CHRISITAN-CARD evidently you must not be carrying your own load, because if you were you wouldn’t be trying to unload your CHRISTIAN-CARD onto other folk.
